Have you ever watched a cliffhanger movie but never got to see the end, that’s how watching tv is with Owen. It’s like Groundhog Day, he keeps repeating and repeating and repeating the same five seconds of a video only to go right back to the same spot and then go back again. I’m always amazed at how he can move to exactly the same spot each time. He was working on his tablet and he started yelling out, “great job you do good work”. Makes me smile when he tells himself he is doing a good job. I wish we’d all take the time to congratulate ourselves sometimes. We push ourselves to limits, but don’t applaud ourselves for how far we’ve come. I think the dude is growing again. He ate all of his dinner and then some of mine. I lost count of the shrimp he ate when he started taking them off my plate. And a spicy chicken rice. He’s been trying more and more foods lately without any fuss at all. As soon as I put the rice down he started eating it and it was off my plate. I still had his plate in my hand to sit in front of him but I had to move his tablet. Soon as I put his plate down it seemed like it was no time and he was back to eating off my plate since he finished all of his. He had a really good day. Listened well, interacted with me, and even was somewhat patient when our internet went out a couple of times. I’m thankful for his smile, his hugs, and his kisses. I reminded him that we are a team, that we have to keep working together and respect each other. Today I smiled a lot, laughed more, and was thankful for how our day went. Rejoice in your victories, share your story, and know that you are important. Smiles to all and donut daze!
I'm Lynn Browder. Owen's Mommy. The best moments in time are when I get to see the smile on his face and that giggle come from his heart.
